User Bio

Dan's Dive Shop was established in 1974 and remains Canada's Oldest PADI 5 Star Training Facility (3rd oldest PADI facility world wide).

Despite being in the industry for 40 years, we have maintained our knowledge, training and experience branching out into Nitrox, Technical Diving, Cave Diving, Exploration, Technical Wreck Penetration, Underwater film projects and more.

We were one of the first stores to start promoting the DIR or Progressive Diving philosophy and retail sales of modern and progressive recreational dive gear, as well as advanced/technical diving scuba equipment.

We make recreational diving more exciting and we give our students more tools to improve their diving and make things easier underwater, while improving divers comfort and posture in the water.

We are actively involved in cave and wreck exploration and teach some extraordinary advanced diving programs for recreational and technical divers.

We teach scuba courses from NAUI, PADI, TDI/SDI, UTD, IDREO
